Author's Summary: A rather dark story in which Ace is slowly taken over by the Cheetah virus from Survival.
Characters/Pairings: Seven, Ace
Warnings: Dub!con, allusions to self harm
Recced because: This... isn't the kind of thing I usually rec, I'll admit. It is dark, and sad, and terrifying, and I swear the first time I read it - even though Seven isn't a Doctor I know well - I stopped breathing and sat on the edge of my teeth. I can't speak for characterisation, but they are consistent, and the edgy, uncanny valley effect in the character's thoughts really throws you off guard. It's a great story for this run up to Halloween, but by no stretch of the word a happy one.
